The emergence of complex technologies is one of the powerful tools that has led to sophisticated Genetic Engineering processes. There are various areas of the application of Genetic engineering adopted in the world today. Genetic engineering is heavily applied on crops, animals and human beings to keep pace with the progressions in the world today. The structural basis of genetic engineering entails the application of technology towards the alteration of major attributes in organisms to acquire modifications to serve a certain interest. There are various entities that have inspired the use of genetic engineering in the society. One of the biggest reasons for the use of genetic engineering is to enhance both plant and animal production in order to meet the requirements of the society.
This is one of the strategies that has been used to enhance the level of sustainability of the society because of the constant increase in human populations experienced across the world (Morgan, 2003). To enhance the genetic engineering process, intensive use of research is elemental because it promotes the acquisition of production practices that is based in evidence. The use of modern tools is also important towards promoting genetic engineering. One of the major triggers that inspires genetic engineering is the use of the technology to promote the value of the organisms. The genetic alterations also assist in the modification of the life cycle of the organisms and this can be applied to reduce the production time in order to meet the demands of the society. However, here are various challenges associated with genetic engineering in the society. A major concern about the associated with genetic engineering includes the health concerns. Genetic engineering is also perceived to compromise the natural orientations of the organisms and the normal biological and physiological processes.
Thesis Statement: The use and application of genetic engineering in organism modification should embrace a comprehensive approach with strategic consideration of the civil and biological concerns associated with its application towards enhancing productivity and satisfying the needs of the people in the society to alleviate the related risks.
The public should have sufficient information on the production and use of genetic engineering the society today to reduce the related risks and enhance the level of transparency in the activities that lead to genetic engineering by the experts.
Increasing transparency is imperative as this is a practical approach that can reduce the knowledge and information gap that exist among various players in the genetic engineering industry.
Increasing the level of awareness among the public is a good step towards promoting genetic engineering because it assist in the aggressive engagement of people and the civil society at large towards the development and positive adjustments that can promote the quality of genetic engineering and ultimately increase safety and comfort (Ferretti & Vincenzo, 2009).
Participation of the public can assist in widening the democratic space around genetic engineering and this can assist in enhancing the support for the prospects that improve productivity.
Genetic engineering heavily relies in research and engaging the public and civil society can provide a classic source of information that can promote the prospects of genetic engineering towards improving the levels of satisfaction and quality of life (Reiss, 2001).
Public participation is important in the mitigation of the resistance that may exists in the society which may threaten the success of the progressions and adoption of the Genetic Engineering outcomes and promote the evolution of the entity (Ferretti & Vincenzo, 2009).
The use of policies regulations is elemental towards the control and management of Genetic engineering in regard to application of biotechnology in the production of organisms.
The relevant agencies and government bodies have the mandate to form the rules in order to provide a good framework along which then genetic engineering is undertaken (Mellon, 2012).
Having the laws that govern genetic engineering is elemental because it assists all the entities that are involved in then undertaking o have a standard platform of operation that can assist them in carrying their activities through the elimination of any legal inconsistencies among all the engineering and biotechnology firms (Reiss, 2001).
The policies associated with genetic engineering can assist in giving the guidelines towards the approval and acquisition of the competent and legitimate firms to undertake the engineering activities.
The policies can also promote enhancing both environmental and human safety with regard to the use of the genetically modified products because it gives the related authorities to take the appropriate regulatory engagements that enhance the integrity of Genetic engineering products (Mellon, 2012).
Policies and regulations can also assist in promoting the vetting proves of the genetic engineering products that are already in the public as way of enhancing their safety standards.
The flaws that exist in genetic engineering must be alleviated systematically to promote the continuous improvements of productivity.
There should be sufficient support for the innovations and creations of technology that can assist in promoting genetic engineering through assisting in gaining sufficient insight into the research and biotechnology (Millstone, Erik, Andy and Dominic, 2015).
Strategic collaboration among the related agencies and research institutions is important towards the reduction of then flaws existing in the flaws in the society.
Sufficient emphasis should be laid towards public and professional debates in order to inspire the genetic engineering prospects (Millstone, Erik, Andy and Dominic, 2015).
The commitment of sufficient resources is imperative towards promoting the activities associated with genetic engineering
